Balance, Posture, Attachment, and Trauma Part 2

A talk by Tim Jobe & Bettina Shultz-Jobe LPC, NCC
Natural Lifemanship, Natural Lifemanship

Moving Beyond “Shoulders back, heals down and toes up!”

Trauma, including early childhood or developmental trauma, can affect balance and posture. In this workshop, you will learn how to address balance and posture issues from the "inside out" instead of from the "outside in". Bettina Shultz-Jobe will share how somatic movement can help us connect to the very movements that developed the brain, body, and nervous system early in life. Through these movements balance and proper posture can be restored, thereby re-organizing the parts of the brain and body most affected by trauma, and preparing the client for deeper trauma processing.

In this experiential workshop, participants will learn by doing and by observation of videos demonstrating techniques on the ground and while mounted (while riding a horse).


  1. Participants will learn how to anchor and move from their core, first on the ground and then on the horse’s back to optimize balance and posture.

  2. Participants will learn how to connect to their front and back bodies as a way to regulate the nervous system and bring about shifts in posture and balance.

  3. Participants will learn about the 7 diaphragms in the body and learn how bringing awareness to these on the ground and while mounted can bring about healthy balance and posture.

  4. Participants will learn how to guide their clients through objectives 1-3.
